Intel® Software Tools HPC training & IOT event

Event website:

The Workshop “Intel® Software Tools HPC training & IOT event” aims at fostering the optimal use of Intel processors (and systems) within the national scientific computing community by means of exploiting Intel Software tools such as compilers, libraries, and hardware such as accelerators (Xeon Phi) and Internet of Things (IOT) devices. It targets people involved in the development and usage of models with a strong numerical background, programmers who code numerical methods in C, C++ or Fortran, or people who need to compile 3rd party code and libraries in an optimal way.This workshop will be held between November 18-19, 2015 at the CMM – Center for Mathematical Modeling in Santiago de Chile.

1:00 pm to 4:00 pmHands on session

Notes: For the hands-on sessions, attendees may opt to use their own Linux* or Windows* based laptop. The ability to re-compile code is necessary for the hands-on work. Wired Internet access will be available and HPC accounts in a local HPC system will be provided. Attendees will be expected to be able to install the Intel® Parallel Studio Cluster Edition package on their laptops.
